The wheel of the year is always turning and Gráinne Holland and her musical friends would like to take you on a journey through the seasons so that you may experience, feel and hear the magic of nature. A 50-minute show combining storytelling, songs, music and dance.

Gráinne Holland is a singer/ songwriter, storyteller and media producer. Born and raised in Belfast, she was brought up with both Gaelic and English and attended the first Irish-medium school in the North of Ireland; Bunscoil Phobal Feirste. Her education undoubtedly fostered her love of traditional Irish music and culture.

Gráinne released her debut album of traditional songs with contemporary arrangements ‘Teanga na nGael’ in 2011 to great critical acclaim. She followed it up with a second studio album ‘Gaelré’ in 2015 which was published under the Gael Linn label. In 2019 Gráinne released her first album of her own original songs titled ‘Corcra’ meaning ‘Purple’ which was produced by renowned musician Brian Finnegan and recorded by Seán Óg Graham at Bannview Studios. 

She presented BBC music and arts series ‘Cuisle’ as well as 4 BBC Radio Ulster Series’ exploring traditional Irish Singing in Ulster. She worked as a freelance producer for 15 years and has produced programmes for BBC, TG4 and RTÉ. She now has her own company ‘Corcra Media’.

In 2021 Gráinne has released a Book & CD of her own compositions for children titled ‘Ceol na Sióg’ which means the music of the fairies. The book was published by An tSnáthaid Mhór.  She has since developed a children’s theatre show based on the songs from this book also titled ‘Ceol na Sióg’ and has performed at festivals and venues all over Ireland.

Gráinne developed and wrote a podcast series titled ‘Tales of Tuatha Dé Danann’ which was launched in December 2023. The series is a retelling of Irish mythological tales woven seamlessly with music and songs. 

Imbolc 2024 will see the launch of Gráinne’s second Book / Album for children titled ‘Draíocht an Dúlra’ which means the magic of nature. Funded by COGG and published by Corcra Media, Draíocht an Dúlra was beautifully illustrated by Morgana Weeks.
